FTP clients for Ubuntu

Today, while looking for some good FTP clients for Ubuntu, I found this nice FTP clients list in AskUbuntu Forum. It has listed the best and top ten FTP clients available today for Ubuntu. I thought I must get a copy to my blog, so anyone who is in hurry would find it easily. Also, I've added a link to the original page at the bottom of the post :) Credit should go to the original poster of this reply at AskUbuntu.

1. Nautilus

Don't forget the FTP client that comes with Ubuntu! It integrates very nicely with Ubuntu, and is very easy to use. You don't have to install any additional software. However, it lacks many of the powerful features that a full-featured FTP client, like FileZilla has.

To use it, go to File > Connect to Server with the desktop selected.

2. gFTP

Another option is to use gFTP, a FTP client with a nice graphical interface that is different from FileZilla's, but only slightly. It can be installed through the Ubuntu Software Center or through sudo apt-get install gftp.

3. Kasablanca

Kasablanca is a GUI FTP client intended for use in KDE, but it will work in Unity too. The interface is very simple and it lacks some of the advanced features of more sophisticated FTP clients. It can be downloaded here.

6. GNOME Commander

GNOME Commander is an FTP client with a very unique interface that supports themes and customization. It can be installed through the Ubuntu Software Center or sudo apt-get install gnome-commander.

7. Sitecopy

Sitecopy is a unique FTP client in that it automatically synches a directory on your computer with a directory on an FTP site automatically in the background. Details at the project's website, which can be found here. Sorry, but I couldn't find a screenshot for this one.

 

8. Filerunner

Filerunner is an FTP client with a very basic interface. It can be installed through the Ubuntu Software Center or through sudo apt-get install filerunner.
